FRIDAY FINISH

HURRAY HURRAY! I love Friday's ... it's the day we get to do a little blog hopping and see what others who suffer from this wonderful thing we call craftiness have accomplished. Hop on over to Sew and Tell and join in on the fun.

So (sew) what did I finish this week? First up - my March block for Love Knows No Season. Elsie's FREE BOM is only available until the next block posts on April 15. You better hurry over here and get it.
Here's a not very good picture of my Sunday Drive. This is a Pat Sloan pattern. It still needs lots of buttons (leaves) on the trees but that will wait until AFTER the quilting is completed. This was a fun project, even though it took 3 years. I love how Pat designs scrappy patch backgrounds with the applique hanging over.
AND ... finally completely finished ... another Sloanie quilt ... Farmer's Market. These were FREE blocks on Pat's web site. This was also a long forgotten project that finally made it's way up to the top of the pile. And it's also not a great photo. I took this late last night and the lighting wasn't good. (photographers always say that about not-so-great pictures). I'll try for better ones and some closeups later today. Hmmm ... probably could play a little with cropping too so you don't have to look at my ceiling. I was trying to keep Cute Husband's Gear Head pants out of the shot.
And my last finish for the week ... this one was a START and a FINISH! It's measures 28". It's a Square in a Square project for a class sample. I'll be teaching this ruler at my friend Donna's guild in 2 weeks.
I also did LOTS of ironing and not sewing related ironing just regular ironing. Donna told me that IRON was a 4-letter word! I am glad that the weather is nicer and Cute Husband has started wearing polo shirts to work ... more time for sewing related ironing!
Have a GREAT weekend!

All of your work is beautiful, but your applique is especially wonderful! Doing an applique is on my quilting bucket list. Just trying to get my courage to commit to such a huge undertaking. I'm not sure why I'm intimidated since I frequently do hand-piece and hand-quilt, but it is new to me.
